TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —1 regret- that it was not until last evening that my attention was drawn to a discussion in your columns anent tlia words used by tile Rov. Cray Dixon in bis speech on the Bible in schools. lam a ministerial member of Assembly, and £ have taken shorthand reports for'my own private use. We have great reason, sir, to be gratified with Ino accuracy and fullness of your reports, but I would respectfully challenge the italicised worls in the report of this speech. The words I took down are as follows:—“I would like to put every elder out of Parliament who would not stand by us in this matter.” The relevant words aro “out of Parliament,” and my report in shorthand shows these words were unquestionably used.—l am, etc., J. T. Gc.xx. November 26. [This is the third version sent to us of what the reverend gentleman said. The protesters are not, between them, doing very much to destroy the reliability of our own report.—Ed. E.S.]
